Overview

Trench at Bleatarn

Trench at Bleatarn.
(Haverfield, F (1897) 'Report of the
Cumberland Excavation Committee, 1895'.
TCWAAS 14, Plate: V.)

The collection contains all of the Transactions volumes published from 1874 up to the current day, with the last 10 years of articles available only in Abstract form.

They are in three series, the Old Series up to 1900, the Second Series from 1901 to 2000 and the Third Series from 2001 onwards. Up to 2013 publication was in about November each year, since 2014 publication is in about July each year.

In early years the contents consisted of reports of the activities of the Society, excursions and proceedings, together with papers read at the meetings, but over time the 'business' sections have been dropped and the volumes now consist of more specialised papers and notes on historical and archaeological subjects.

Individual papers and notes are refereed or peer-reviewed and cover all aspects of 'past life' in the old counties of Cumberland and Westmorland and Lancashire North of the Sands - the present day Cumbria.

The average size of any volume is 300 pages and it is published in both 'case-bound' and 'soft-back' versions. The style is uniform and the present livery is blue with gold lettering for the case-bound and blue with red lettering for the soft-back.
